Re: toshiba without battery
1. If the batteries are dead then there's no way that you can charge them again. You're better off purchasing a new one. You can purchase one online by visiting the ToshibaDirect website or by calling them on 1-800-316-09202.
2. Yes, you can use the power cords to run the computer. Just plug them in using the power cords even with the batteries removed and it should work fine.
3. Yes you can but you might experience some current fluctuations. This is negligible on a CMOS battery though.

You Power Cord must be bad. If you cannot get on the laptop by using just the power cord, then the power cord is bad and needs to be replaced. Also it sounds like you've been operating off your battery since the power cord is bad, but now the battery is dead because the bad power cord was not charging it.
Get a new AC Adapter and Power Cord. Or it could be that the pin where you plug the power cord into the table is damaged or broken.
1) Try to plug the AC power adapter and see if the Nextbook2 turns on - if it does, there is 99% chance that the battery is dead. You can get the replacement battery only from the Nextbook manufacturer/dealer, nobody else sells separate batteries yet, not even on eBay.
2) If the Nexbook2 DOESN'T turn on even with the AC power adapter plugged in - see whether it (1) starts to load the system or (2) merely makes a sound, but nothing appears on the screen, or (3) maybe it doesn't even make a sound. In the (1) case you could reinstall the system, but it's not that easy without a built-in CD-ROM, so I recommend to bring it to the mechanic/dealer/manufacturer. There is no better solution possible.
pull the battery out and unplug the power changer hold the enter key for one full minute then install battery see what charge amount says if half way drain it till compter shuts off then charge, if it does not fix the problem the battery is dead.Rate if this was helpful.
Discharging the battery will not harm the battery. Lenovo purposely has an annoyingly slow recharge rate because a quick recharge will shorten the life of the battery. It is not a problem if you have the patience to allow a long recharge. Otherwise spring for a second battery for quick replacement when AC power is not accessible.
1. Unplug Ac power cord and take out the battery 2. Press and hold power buton for 25 secs (yes without cord and battery)
